Editors' Review

Dr.Fone by Wondershare is a superb application that makes retrieving missing data a breeze. Anyone can use this program because of its attractive and intuitive, step-by-step guide. Dr.Fone's free trial performance is outstanding, but like all free software, there are the occasional hiccups.

Pros

Great support: Wondershare Dr.Fone provides excellent directions for making the most of the software, including rooting your phone and managing debugging tools. Web site support is clear-cut and easy to follow.

Excellent operation: Although this application took approximately one hour and 20 minutes to retrieve all of our data, it performed better than expected. Thousands of photos, dozens of videos, and hundreds of text messages were found after being previously deleted.

Cons

Misleading, slow setup: The installation wizard encouraged us to download two additional programs but made them out to be part of Wondershare Dr.Fone. We found this to be troublesome, and it complicated the installation process.

Unsupported devices: We originally used an HTC One m8 for our tests, but this device was not recognizable, causing us to test a different device instead. The HTC One m8 is new, so we understand the lack of support, but this is a sign that Dr.Fone is not updated often.

Bottom Line

Wondershare Dr.Fone lives up to its promise and cannot be any easier to understand and operate. The free trial is very powerful and should handle any general issues you may have, but the paid version is still best for those that need to do large recoveries. Download and use Dr.Fone if you need to recover any lost data on your Android phone; and if your device is not supported, we recommend looking into similar applications that may be more up to date.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Wondershare Dr.Fone for Android 4.3.0.
